'The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine' DLC news: teaser for much-anticipated add-on released


The newest teaser trailer for the “The Witcher’s” upcoming expansion pack touted as “Blood and Wine” has finally landed to the delight of many fans.

The two-minute video gives the proper introduction of the new supposed location for the DLC which is called Toussaint. Aesthetically, the kingdom looks like a mid-century European city filled with lush greeneries and central business towns as well as ships docks and wineries. While the location is originally not touched by chaos, things escalated quickly when things go awry. A beast goes rogue and the only person who can stop him from destructing the whole of Toussaint is the Witcher which happens to be Geralt. His adventure then starts via trying to find out how and why the terrifying monster goes out of control.

The trailer of Blood and Wine seemingly embodies what CD Projekt Red has promised its fans, which Senior Environment Artist Len de Garcia divulged would be a “graphics upgrade from the base game.”

“We have employed methods that we did not implement in the base game. You can literally bring your camera up to a wall now and the textures would be crisp at least in most cases … We just wanted to show that we can actually push it to the limit this time,” she added.

Being the last add-on for “The Witcher” as confirmed by Senior Story Writer Jakub Szamalek, there have been high expectations for it that’s why they are trying to make it as flawless as possible.

Despite this, game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz promised that while they will no longer work on new content, they will definitely offer support and continue addressing existing glitches in the gameplay.

“The first thing is that we try to fix as many bugs as we can for the second expansion and the main game and we will release a patch before we release the expansion and maybe one later,” Tomaszkiewicz said.

“The Witcher” Blood and Wine DLC will come to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 31.
